Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: For optimal growth, start your California Wonder Sweet Pepper seeds indoors, especially in cooler climates, 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Once the seedlings are sturdy and the external temperatures are consistently warm, transplant them outdoors. Sow the seeds a quarter-inch deep, spacing the plants 18-24 inches apart, with row spacing at around 30 inches. Position them in a spot that receives abundant sunlight, and ensure the soil drains well to prevent root rot. Regular watering and occasional fertilization will keep your plants thriving. Monitor for pests and diseases, especially given their susceptibility, even with the 300 TMR's enhanced resistance. As the peppers mature, harvest them to encourage more fruiting, and enjoy the sweet results of your gardening efforts.
